I have 3 painted turtles hatched 3 days ago. One is having difficulty swimming & I\'ve noticed the other 2 turtles yawn at least 3 or 4 times this afternoon. I\'m afraid of respiratory disease. Do you think it is possible to treat new hatchings and, if so, would a vet help? Has anyone else dealt with this problem? And should I isolate the turtles from each other?

3 days might be kinda soon for a respitory disease but it is possible. What is the temps of your tank water and basking area? For hatchlings I like to keep them at 80 and 88.
Each vet is different. We have a new one that will treat hatchlings if they are from the breeder.
